TV Ratings: Viewers Don't Feel 'Ready for Love,' 'NCIS' Dips to Season Low
The NBC dating show gets a soft debut, despite its robust lead, while the CBS procedural takes a big hit from it last original outing.
The Voice (4.2 adults) was up a tenth of a point from last Tuesday's showing on NBC, though the night's most robust broadcast didn't ensure a strong premiere for Ready for Love (1.6 adults).

NBC averaged a 2.4 rating with adults 18-49 and 6.9 million viewers.
NCIS (2.6 adults) tumbled six tenths of a point from its last original, hitting a season low. NCIS: L.A. (2.6 adults) tied its recent performance, while Golden Boy (1.5 adults) rebounded by two tenths of a point. CBS averaged a 2.2 rating with adults 18-49 and 12.8 million viewers.

The Mindy Project (1.5 adults) was up two tenths of a point from its last originals on both Tuesday and Thursday, giving Fox an average 1.8 rating with adults 18-49 and 3.96 million viewers.
Splash (1.2 adults) continues to slide on ABC, falling two tenths of a point short of last week's episode. Dancing With the Stars' results hour (1.9 adults) lost four tenths of a point from last week. Body of Proof held its recent 1.4 adults rating, and ABC averaged a 1.5 rating in the demo and 8.7 million viewers.
On The CW, Hart of Dixie (0.6 adults) led into an encore of America's Next Top Model, giving the network an average 0.4 rating with adults 18-49 and 956,000 viewers.
